When Sodium Chlorite comes in contact with an acid, it breaks down into the gas, Chlorine Dioxide plus sodium. One has to assume that Humble's original use and benefits
from the 3.5% Sodium Chlorite water purification drops was due to minute production levels of the gas, Chlorine dioxide upon contact with stomach acids. Later, he found that larger doses of the 3.5% concentration
gave better cure rates. Later still, he increased the Sodium Chlorite's concentration to 28% plus found that pre-activating this solution with vinegar (acetic acid) or citric acid or lemon juice then waiting 3 minutes
prior to ingesting improved the efficacy of this as a medicinal remedy even further. The previous 70% cure rate came close to 100% now. It is theorized that the pre-activated Chlorine dioxide is picked up by the red
blood cells in the gastrointestinal tract and carried throughout the body. It is this red blood cell absorption of Chlorine Dioxide that kills the red blood cell parasite that causes malaria, P. falciparum. Another
suggested immunity enhancement from Chlorine Dioxide is the possibility that it could be a precursor to Hypochlorous acid, a very important body acid for the immune system. Chlorine Dioxide may also be important in
leeching out heavy metals and neutralizing various toxins beyond actually killing pathogens. Whatever the true mechanism of this remedy, one thing is known, it seems to work wonders on curing many infections.
Sodium Chlorite (NaClO2) is a white-yellowish, flaky powder employed in industry as a convenient means to produce the gas, Chlorine Dioxide. Chlorine Dioxide is used in
the textile, paper, and pulp industries as a bleach. It is also widely used at municipal water purification plants to treat drinking water. Sodium Chlorite can be found incorporated into mouth washes, tooth pastes,
rinses, chewing gums, etc. However, as an isolated chemcial, it is highly flammable when dry and should be handled with caution.
Interestingly, Sodium Chlorate (NaClO3), a
close relative of Sodium Chlorite with one more atom of oxygen has been used as a supplement for cattle in a study to control E. coli infections with success. One study from the Journal of Animal Science
"Chlorate treatment reduced E. coli counts throughout the intestinal tract but did not alter total culturable anaerobic bacterial counts or the ruminal fermentation pattern. Therefore, it appears that
chlorate supplementation is a viable potential strategy to reduce E. coli populations in cattle prior to harvest."
I think this study suggests how safe and of possible value that this similar chemical structure can become in fighting infections though I understand that even one atom's difference can vastly change a molecule.
Perhaps, Sodium Chlorite is not too different? It also seems to suggest that only harmful pathogens may be targeted leaving the good bacterial cultures alone in the gut. This is one thing that many commercial
antibiotics will not do!
Preparation and Protocol
Jim Humble's 28% solution
can be found marketed on the web in many places ready to use. First, let me correct a common misconception here about the supposedly 28% strength of MMS. In reality, it is really 22.4% Sodium Chlorite. Not that it
really makes a lot of difference in the general scheme of therapeutics. This discrepancy occurs because MMS is made from an 80% technical grade of Sodium Chlorite.
If you notice, Google has several
vendor ads linked to the top of this page, though I do not endorse them. It will be marketed as MMS or Miracle Mineral Supplement. I know, a cheesy name, but there is a reason for this, the FDA!
Supplements are not regulated by the FDA. If you were looking to buy or sell a medical cure for any disease, the FDA would shut a remedy down in a minute with a more obvious name. A supplement classification exempts
this remedy for the time being from FDA control with a supplement type name helping insure this safety from prosecution. I buy mine off of eBay where you can find it ready made from $15-20 per 4 ounce bottle. It must be
activated with an acid, but not with anything that contains Vitamin C, nor should it be added to any filler medium in a drench that contains Vit. C like orange juice or supplemented juices or milk where Vit. C has been
added. It is recommended that Citric acid is the best activator, but I tend to use just plain old vinegar or lemon juice.
It can be given orally or intravenously (IV).
Of course, orally is the easiest and safest route and it is what I would recommend for most animals. Simply place one teaspoon of vinegar in a small container, add the desired number of drops of the 28% solution to it
and wait 3-10 minutes. One must wait a minimum of 3 minutes to allow the generation of Chlorine Dioxide gas in this solution before treating your animal. One can wait up to 10 minutes, but that is usually the outside
limit. It should be always prepared fresh and quickly administered. Once the sodium chlorite has been activated with your acid with the required waiting period, add it to a filler of some type for the animal to
voluntarily drink or involuntarily drenched. Many animals will drink it right down. One or two ounces of plain water would probably be the desired material if you are drenching a horse; however, you can drench
with any amount. You might use broth for a dog or cat, if you prefer not to use water. Jim Humble advises one to treat with small doses many times a day rather than two or three times a day. If you have the time and
inclination, this is probably the preferable schedule. If not, I would at least try to treat your animal two to three times per day. Dosages vary and are open to some guess work. For small animals, I would start around
1-2 drop dosages. For humans, it is suggested that one should start out at a drop and depending on tolerance, work oneself up to a standard 15 drop dose. For a horse, I would start at a low dosage and monitor how the
animal is tolerating this treatment before you go to the larger recommended dosages. As an example, it is recommended that one uses 3 drops per 25 pounds for small animals. For larger animals like the horse, use one
drop per 25 pounds (approx 40 drops for a 1000 pound horse). As mentioned earlier, I would start my horse out at around 15 drops and see how it is tolerated before moving on. It is always good to be a little cautious at
first as each individual is just that, an individual and may react uniquely. If you use larger drop dosages as would be appropriate for the horse, be sure to use corresponding larger volumes of acid to activate the
sodium chlorite, 2 teaspoons of acid for a 40 drop dose. It is always better to use too much acid than too little.
The diluted activated solution can be given orally, used topically, mixed
with DMSO, or given intravenously. I will not discuss the IV-administration on this page, but will cover it extensively in my book.
If you want to save more money and make your own solution from commonly sold 80% Sodium Chlorite powder:
Ingredients mixed for a final 28% MMS (22.4% sodium chlorite) Solution:
Sodium Chlorite (80%)
add to make 100 ml
add to make 250 ml
add to make 500 ml
add to make 1000 ml
To make a percentage solution, one would add 28 grams of solute (sodium chlorite) to make 100 ml of solution. This
will give a 28% solution. Note, one must first weight out the solute and then add enough water to make the target volume as the solute will itself take up some volume on its own.
The formla for a percentage solution is
Drug weight (X) / finished solution = %strength / 100
Thus, to make100 ml of 28% of sodium chlorite, your formula would be:
X / 100 ml = 28% / 100
X = 100 x 28 / 100
X = 2800 / 100
X = 28 grams to make 100 ml of solution by adding only enough water to make 100 ml
Recommendations from Jim Humble:
1) Repeated small doses are more effective than large morning and night dosages.
2) Put as much MMS into the body as you can without causing an increase in sickness, nausea or scours.
3) Decrease the number of drops as needed if diarrhea or nausea occurs, but do not stop taking MMS.
4) Avoid all forms of Vitamin C, two hours before and after use of MMS.
1) In humans, diarrhea and nausea can occur at the larger dosages. One should generally back off the dosage levels
until these symptoms disappear and slowly increase until one can obtain around a 15 drop dosage (human). In animals,
one may want to follow the same specs, though if your animal is seriously ill, you may want to forgo these symptoms for an overall improvement in condition at initial larger dosages. It is a judgment call.
2) I would avoid breathing the activated sodium chlorite. So do not put it in a nebulizer. Never put the full strength
28% sodium chlorite directly on skin. If this happens, immediately wash with water. It will burn and produce damage in
that form! If full strength 28% solution is spilt and allowed to dry, it can be flammable! In contrast, the diluted activated solution in drop dosages can safely be orally given, sprayed on skin, etc!
3) If for some reason, you find that you have overdosed a patient with Sodium Chlorite, immediately take 1-5 grams of vitamin C to deactivate the sodium chlorite along with plenty of water.
Jerry Tennant MD writes
"MMS, sodium chlorite, promotes an oxidative therapy. I have yet to find any virus, bacteria, yeast, fungus
parasite, or poison it will not destroy. I have seen the fever and fatigue/muscle aches of flu disappear in 2-3
hours after using it. MMS works the same way as the white blood cells, kills bugs by oxidation. Remember that sodium chlorite is an electron stealer
, so it should not be used for more than a week or two, but just to get ahead of an infection. Electron stealers cause damage, are acidic, are free radicals, are destructive".
Personal Case Histories:
My first actual introduction to sodium chlorite only came a few weeks ago though I have studied its use for several
years and maintained some on hand in my dispensary. I just never had a chance or inclination to use it until my 12 year
old bull terrier became ill. On July 3rd, 2009, she suddenly went off of her feed. This is really abnormal for this animal.
Food has always been one of the motivations in her life and it was typical of her to start barking for food around feed
time. For six straight days, she showed absolutely no interest in food of any type. She was increasingly lethargic and
showed a wasting that was very pronounced. It seemed obviously to me that something was very seriously wrong with
this old girl. On the sixth day, she suddenly started drinking huge amounts of water with both her eye lens starting to
cloud over with what appeared to be milky white cataracts which often can precede diabetes. I immediately guessed
that this was signs of impending diabetes. I have experienced similar symptoms in a Scot terrier, I owned a few years
earlier. That dog died. For whatever reasons, I happened to remember that I had the 28% sodium chlorite solution in
my dispensary and decided to try it on the Bully. I gave her one drop activated in some homemade apple cider vinegar,
waited the 3 minutes, added about one ounce of water and drenched her. Within 12 hours, she would accept food in
front of her and within 24 hours, her eyes were again dark and clear. Her water drinking habits went back to normal.
Within approximately three more days, she appeared alert and was again barking for food at the appropriate hour. I
generally went to a 3 times-a-day drenching schedule consisting of 4-drop dosages. She probably weighs around 50
pounds. I would avoid quitting this schedule too soon, but maintain it for several weeks after the animal has regained health. So far, my dog seems to be pretty much back to normal.
